I'd like to add a custom block in description tab just after long description field.

I Tried

<referenceBlock name="product.info.description">
<block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View\Description" name="product.subdescription" template="product/view/subdescription.phtml" />

but it did not work.


Try to change template name like below: (change Vendor_Module according to your custom module)

<referenceBlock name="product.info.details">
    <block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View" name="product.subdescription" template="Vendor_Module::product/view/subdescription.phtml" group="detailed_info"/>
  • Tried this, but there's an exception 1 exception(s): Exception #0 (Magento\Framework\Exception\ValidatorException): Invalid template file: 'Magento_Catalog::product/view/subdescription.phtml' in module: 'Magento_Catalog' block's name: 'product.subdescription' – domfitty May 7 '19 at 8:23
  • This is subdescription.phtml content <?php $_helper = $this->helper('Magento\Catalog\Helper\Output'); $_product = $block->getProduct(); ?> <h1>SUBDESCRIZIONE</h1> <?php if ($_product->getData('downloadable')): ?> <div class="product-collateral-itunes" id="downloadable" > <div class="innerdownloadable"><?php echo $_product->getData('downloadable') ?></div> </div> <?php endif; ?> – domfitty May 7 '19 at 8:24
  • @domfitty is your template stored like this app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/templates/product/view/subdescription.phtml ? – fmsthird May 7 '19 at 8:27
